Full “Moon Over Miami” Festivities
No, not the 1941 musical film directed by Walter Lang.
This one is full. And features a small eclipse.
Unfortunately, North America is not in the viewing zone for the eclipse, but if you’re roaming around Eastern Africa, Asia or Australia, LOOK UP around 2:54 pm EDT, or 1854 GMT.
September 16th marks the night of the harvest moon. This moon falls around the time farmers in the Northern Hemisphere are harvesting their crops so farmers can work late into the night. Hence, harvest moon. This is always one of the more beautiful full moons of the year, so they say.
A full moon is a time of positive opportunity if you use it correctly. Here in the city of Miami, we find full moons soothingly captivating so we’ve put together a list of some stellar ways to celebrate.
Full Moon Goddess Circle
Females on full moons ain’t nothin’ to f*ck with. Your inner goddess is begging for some TLC. Bring her with you as you experience a Cleansing ceremony, Awakening Dance with Cacao from Shamanic Tonic, Tobacco Ceremony and a Spiritual Bag making workshop to manifest with the Moon’s energy. Come dressed in your best white or pink fit and bring your instrument if you’re musically inclined. Oh, and there’s a potluck afterwards. #yasqueen
